Pregnant with her second child, tennis player Serena Williams announced in an Instagram post Monday night before attending the Met Gala.
“I was so excited when Anna Wintour invited the three of us to the Met Gala,” Williams wrote in the caption, referring to Vogue’s editor-in-chief and Met Gala chairwoman.
Williams and her husband, Reddit co-creator Alexis Ohanian, are already the parents of 5-year-old Olympia.
The 23-time Grand Slam champion won the 2017 Australian Open while eight weeks pregnant; She finds out she was expecting just before the start of the tournament.
Williams announced in an article for Vogue last August that she would be “evolving away” from tennis, citing her desire to expand her family. Her last professional match was at the 2022 US Open.
